Wine Tattoos: Will They Ever Be Cool?

Wine Tattoos: Will They Ever Be Cool?

December 22, 2020

We thought we would try and save you some of the remorse that we pretend we don’t have about our first tattoos by giving you some tips. And, because wine tattoos are a tough lot to work with.... what better topic then wine tattoos?! Because of the subject matter, wine tattoos have a tendency to be incredibly cheesy, and forced. Also, they can be pourly (pun) thought out, placed and designed.

Screw Caps, Corks, and Other Wine Closures

October 21, 2020

Having used both, screw caps and corks over the last +/-15 years of making wine we have learned that sometimes different jobs require different tools. Today we are discussing our decision to use a screw cap to close our wine instead of a traditional cork.

August 05, 2020

A lot of our friends in the industry, who make some of the best wines we've had, feel that big wine producers are stealing the soul out of the business, and we agree. Maybe it is time to rethink what you value in wine.

How to Pick The Best Pinot Noirs

How to Pick The Best Pinot Noirs

July 21, 2020

Many people will ask us ‘which are the best pinot noirs to buy, from where, how much, and why?’ At Lucky Rock Wine Co. we buy a lot of Pinot Noir (not just our own) and in order to find the best Pinot Noir, we like to factor in a few things: Location, Vintage, Practices, PRICE, and Douche Factor (not a fancy winemaking term… it’s just what you think).

Red White and Rosé (made from Pinot Noir)

Red White and Rosé (made from Pinot Noir)

June 30, 2020

In honor of American Independence Day, we are writing this blog about red, white and rosé wine… made from Pinot Noir. The process is similar for most red grapes, but we’ll highlight Pinot Noir here. Many do not realize that Pinot Noir can be made into a red, white and rosé wine- it’s all about how you treat the fruit when it comes in the door- the cellar door.

Romancing the Vine

Romancing the Vine

June 23, 2020

We would make our own wine, bottle our own wine, and package our own wine - no shortcuts (well, not many). Instead of covering our labels with flowery descriptions, we’re here to give it to you straight- a fucking snake-  one that, if it's not comfortable in its skin...it sheds it.

Best Sonoma County Wineries for Summer Sippin’

June 02, 2020

The sweltering heat is here and for a lot of people these days, this means picking up a case of alcoholic La Croix (hard seltzers), or some America Water (Bud Light) and that’s just fine and dandy. But for those of us who want a little bit more flavor, wine is still the staple beverage for summer.

In order to give you a little insight into what kind of vino would work perfectly in the sweltering heat of the summer months, we decided to pick a few of my favorite Sonoma County wineries that specialize in delicious, easy-drinking summer wines.

Lucky Rock Wine Co.’s Definition of Sustainable: Don’t be an ecological asshole

My Brother, and business partner, uses the analogy of cooking when trying to describe sustainability- I think it works. Basically, he says ‘when you are cooking sustainably, you don’t just keep the best part of the steak and throw the rest away.

In Regard to Good Vitis on Lucky Rock

In Regard to Good Vitis on Lucky Rock

March 27, 2020

From Good Vitis:  I’ll be completely open about my own experience with Lucky Rock. I’d never heard of it until Jesse contacted me, and after looking at the website and Instagram I set myself up for disappointment. The sauvignon blanc was solid, maybe even good, but the pinot noir blew me away. The reality is that Lucky Rock is a legitimate winery that punches above its price point.

BOX-SHAPED FOOD, FOOD TRUCKS, AND WINE: THE ULTIMATE PAIRING

BOX-SHAPED FOOD, FOOD TRUCKS, AND WINE: THE ULTIMATE PAIRING

February 18, 2020

Wine is, basically, fermented grape juice - that’s all. It’s the drink of Kings and Queens and peasants alike. Food is the same! Sure, you can eat a $100-per-plate dinner, but you can also make some damn fine food at home. Lucky Rock Wine Co. is akin to our food equivalent: THE FOOD TRUCK.

Not that we don’t appreciate a taco truck, but that concept can be polished up a bit. Throw some new paint and branding on a taco truck and BOOM you have a ‘FOOD Truck.’.
